Weekends on campus will be buz- 
zing with classes this January as a 
new flock of students from surround- 
ing communities come to attend the 
first semester of LVC's "Weekend 

Classes will begin on January 21 
and 22, and will be held bi-weekly on 
Friday evenings and all day 
Saturday, according to Dr. Edwin 
Welch, director of the Weekend Col- 
lege. Some courses will extend over a 
15 week period, with eight sessions 
lasting 2 V2 hours. Others will be com- 
pacted into seven weeks, having 4 
Masses which last 4 hours, 45 mi- 
nutes. Adults wishing to improve or 
complete their education can work to- 
ward their degree in one of five ma- 
jors: Business Administration, Ac- 
counting, Nursing, Sociology or the 
humanities. "If a student attends the

By Richard Iskowitz 
LVC Professor Of Art 

On the afternoon of May 16, 1977 
the last pieces of sod were tamped into 
place around the base of "Arkabutla" 
indicating the completion of a project 
which had begun almost 2 years ago. 
James Buchman's sculpture, a combi- 
nation of granite, limestone, concrete 
and steel sits firmly astride pathways 
between Blair Music Center and the 
Administration Building. 

Since Jim was commissioned to 
build an outdoor sculpture he was 
presented with an aesthetic problem 
of relating his piece to the vastness of 
open space. In adjusting the scale of 
"Arkabutla" to this space Jim said (in 
an earlier interview with Ann Mon- 
teith) "When you place a sculpture 
outside it usually ends up being like 
landscaping — from a distance you 
can't see it, it doesn't mean anything, 
it doesn't take any place in the envi- 
ronment, it doesn't claim any space 
for itself . . .I'm hoping that from a 
distance it will claim the space that it 
needs because of its size." By increas- 
ing the size of the sculpture so that it is 
comprehensible from a distance is not 
without its difficulties. Since Jim's 
sculpture is to be experienced from 
within as well as from without, a deli- 
cate visual balance must be main- 
tained from near and far. The sculp- 
ture must be large enough to be seen 
from a distance and yet not so large 
that one can't relate to its dimensions 
close up. In considering this adjust- 
ment Jim said, "There is a danger 
when you get up close to the thing — 
to those concrete forms and the big 
rock — the danger is that it could be 
aggressive in some sense. People pas- 
sing by it everyday might be over- 
whelmed by the large objects. So 
there's a balance that has to be struck 
between holding space in the environ- 
ment so that the sculpture means 
something and at the same time as- 
suring that it is not so overwhelming 
that it is aggressive." 

something wrong 

Several hours after the 9 concrete 
mastabas were set into place I met Jim 
on the top step of the Music Center. 
From this vantage point we both 
sensed that something was wrong 
with the scale of his sculpture. The 
end mastaba closest to the big rock 
seemed to intrude upon the space of 
the granite rock thus reducing its vis- 

ual strength and size. At the same 
time the end mastaba tended to close 
off the space of the sculpture, making 
it less inviting to walk through. The 
decision was made to remove the end 
mastaba; now there are 8, thus giving 
it a greater feeling of approachability . 

Another element to consider is how 
the design of "Arkabutla" is con- 
ditioned by its specific site. Jim was 
excited by the fact that he was given 
the opportunity to make a sculpture 
for a specific location. He said, "It 
was a pleasure to be able to see an 
object grow in a place where it is 
meant to be and will stay." Jim met 
the challenge of relating the sculpture 
to the immediate environment by 
carefully calculating the composition 
to reflect the direction and shape of 
the foot path. (See accompanying 
drawing.) This triangular composi- 
tion is most visible from the lobby 
level of Blair Music Center. 

affinity with environment 

In addition to its triangular shape 
other formal devices were employed 
to achieve an affinity with its environ- 
ment. The largest unit of the sculp- 
ture, the eight concrete mastabas, is 
positioned in front of the southwest 
facade of the Music Center. Both the 

color and material of these tapering 
vertical forms strike a harmony with 
the backdrop of Blair. 

Undoubtedly the meaning of "Ar- 
kabutla" cannot be separated from its 
formal concerns. Its size, its location 
on campus, its shape and its materials 
are part of what the sculpture is all 
about. Still the question will arise — 
what is it supposed to represent? 

studied ruins 
Knowing something about the 
sculptor's past experience provides a 
guide in understanding his present 
work. Jim has studied ancient ruins 
on several continents. He commented 
to Ann Monteith in The Reporter, 
"I've traveled and seen ruins in 
Greece, Mayan ruins in the Yucatan, 
Celtic ruins in Northern Scotland and 

Southern France, and the ruins in 
Troy and Turkey. What this means is 
that I am bringing to this campus, 
which is a public place, experience of 
seeing ruins of other public places . . . 
It's about seeing a part and interring 
from that part a whole." The forms of 
"Arkabutla" seem to suggest or 
evoke memories of other fragments 
Jim has seen. Does the "big rock" 
(visually a slab) because of its size 
imply a wall or backdrop of an open- 
air theater? And does the presence of 
this granite monolith also evoke an 
earlier presence of the character of 
ancient architecture? 

Even though a great deal of mys- 
tery surrounds "Arkabutla" Jim pro- 
vided us with just enough information 
to stimulate our imagination. 

"Disruptive" drinking 
policy ruled out.

In April of 1976 a committee con- 
sisting of six students, six board 
members, and six faculty was formed 
to study the current school policy of 
prohibiting alcohol on campus. The 
committee, headed by Dr. Edwin 
Welch, concluded that drinking 
should be allowed with the provision 
that it be restricted to designated 
areas on campus. 

faculty for liberalizing 

According to polls conducted by 
Dr. Welch, one-third of the faculty 
believed there should be no change in 
the present policy. However, fifty- 
percent believed the law should be 
liberalized and the remainder believed 
it should be eliminated completely, 
saying students should be treated like 
adults and be allowed to make their 
own decisions. 

In a poll of 76 students, 44 male and 
32 female, 62 stated the current law 
had no bearing on their decision to 
attend Lebanon Valley. But, 51 
agreed the present policy should be 
changed and that drinking should be 
allowed on campus. 

Dr. Welch submitted these find- 
ings to the Board of Trustees. The 
Board was split almost evenly and 
decided the no drinking policy was 
the more sound of the two ideas being 
scrutinized. The reason for the sway 
in favor of prohibition was given as 
not vandalism or destruction of school 
property, but "disruption." 

alcohol "disruptive" 

According to Dean Marquette the 
Board felt alcohol would create a dis- 
ruptive atmosphere for study. The 
Dean also stated, "The Board is the 
chief legal entity of the College, there- 
fore giving them the final say in all 
legal matters pertaining to the Col- 

Because the college is affiliated 
with the United Methodist Church it 
recognizes the positions the Church 
takes on various matters. One of the 
positions taken by the Church is the 
abstention from alcoholic beverages 
because of the harmful effect it may 
have on the individual. The current 
Board policy is in effect with the usual 
ramifications of violation expected 
from the Student Judicial System.

WC publicized 

Last Fall an informal survey was 
taken, which revealed some public in- 
terest. Plans were publicized this Au- 
gust in several local newspapers, and 
a brochure was mailed to 20,000 
people in surrounding areas, extend- 
ing to Harrisburg, Lancaster, Read- 
ing and Pottsville. "We're trying to 
reach an audience that LVC hasn't 
reached before," explains Dr. Welch, 
"and we're doing it on their terms." 

The Weekend College looks to an 
ideal number of 75 to 80 students this 
January, distributed over the five ma- 
jors. Dr. Welch explains that, at this 
point, there is no certainty of its suc- 
cess, but he finds himself to be 
"reasonably optimistic" about the 

Resident Rat becomes SJB case 

By Liz Steele 

As nearly everyone knows, this 
year saw the end of LVC's student 
senate and the issuance of senate 
points for any infractions of campus 
rules. Replacing the senate is an or- 
ganization known as the Student Jud- 
icial Board (SJB), which, in effect, 
brings swifter, stronger, and more 
long-lasting punishment than the 
cumulative senate points. One of the 
first - hand witnesses to this was 
Dennis Peters, a sophomore biology 
major living on third floor Funkhous- 
er East. He is the owner of Usarian, a 
white rat who was formerly a member 
of LVC's biology department and the 
start of one of the SJB's first cases. 

rat stolen 

When Dennis returned to school 
this year he brought Usarian, whom 
he had acquired last spring, with him 
in a cage which he kept in his closet. 
Dennis assumed that no one knew of 
Usarian's existence until 2 days after 
they arrived and he found the rat mis- 
sing from her cage — and the cage 
shut and locked. There was, Dennis 
said, no way the rat could have es- 
caped. He thoroughly searched the 
room and, finding no trace of Usa- 
rian, took the problem to the coun- 
selor on third floor east, on a personal 
basis. The counselor said only that he 
would speak to the other counselors 
about it and would "Keep his eyes 

Usarian reappears 

Three days later Usarian made an 
unexplained reappearance in Dennis' 
room — not, however, in her cage. 
Immediately following the rat's re- 
turn, Dennis took her out of the dorm 
to avoid any further incidents. 

Three days following the return, on 
the 6th of September at approximate- 
ly 9:45 P.M., there was a fire drill in 
Funkhouser. The purpose of the drill 
was later alleged as a general search 
and attempt to recover some missing 
lounge furniture. Dennis had a 
meeting Uirectly following the drill 
and didn't return to his room until 
much later. He found there a note to 
see the counselor immediately and, 
meeting him, was told that a rat had 
been found running free on the bed in 
his room. The counselor wondered if 
it might be the missing rat. Dennis 
explained that this was not Usarian at 
all, but Cindy, a rat belonging to a 
friend. The counselor informed De- 
nnis that he would have to be re- 
ported. At this point, Dennis said he 
thought the counselor might have 
been looking for the rat, but the coun- 
selor denied this, saying that it had 
been just a general search.

Student government 
made "a mockery" 

The Board of Trustees has made a mockery of student government at 
LVC. And, what is worse, we have allowed them to do it, without so much as 
an answering whimper of protest. I am speaking, of course, of the dissolu- 
tion of the Student Senate and the subsequent formation of the Student 
Judicial Board. 

My purpose is not to condemn the new SJB : I believe and have observed 
so far that the net effect of the change will be none at all. Nor can I find fault 
with Dean Marquette and the rest of the ad hoc Committee on Alcohol, out 
of whose recommendations the Board excerpted the change: in the context 
in which they made the suggestion, it was intelligently derived and approp- 

However, the action of the Board was outrageous. To simply "dis- 
solve" the Student Senate during its summer absence is inexcusable. It 
shows the Board's disregard for the students' rights and institutions. To do 
so without any notification of the students further evidences the Board's 
contempt for the intellects of the students. 

But we have given them reason to treat us as children, simply by 
allowing them to do so. Certainly, resident life will go on uninterrupted, 
unaltered by the nominal change in our judicial system. But we have 
demonstrated to the Board of Trustees that they can do what they like to us 
and our institutions, and we will just accept it blithely. So what will go next? 
Student Council? The social fraternities? 

The effectiveness of the new Judicial Board is hampered by the manner 
in which it was conceived. What respect can we maintain for our political 
structures if they can be arbitrarily dissolved or reshaped at the whim of 
another authority? Very little, I suspect — and history obviously supports 

What we need to do is to take our rights and our institutions seriously: 
they may seem at times to be small and weak, but that should make them all 
the more precious. When we begin to do this, God help the "other authority" 
who tries to take them away from us!

LVC blacks out again 

By John Ebert 

They said, it wouldn't happen 
again, but on Friday, Sept. 2 at 6:42 
the lights went out. To the juniors and 
seniors it was nothing new, the cam- 
pus had experienced a blackout just 2 
years ago. 

It meant the involuntary defrost- 
ing of refrigerators, studying in the 
college center, library, or not at all, 
drinking warm water, beer (on the 
campus?) and worst of all not having 
a fan or a stereo. 

To the freshmen and sophomores 
the blackout meant breaking every 
inter visitation rule possible, guitar 
playing minstrels roaming from floor 
to floor, quiet moments by candel- 
light, in romance, contemplation, or 
sleep and largely a sense of bewilder- 
ment or fear. Several freshmen had 
been off campus during the day and 
had returned to find dark, empty 
rooms throughout the dorms. One 
student had thought an evacuation 
might be in progress. When I told him 
it was only a blackout, he had but a 
momentary relief and then asked in 
wonder, "but how can I shower in the

Mel Blanc- 
Man of 1 ,000 Voices 

Marcia Martin receives the 1977 Homecoming Crown with tears of joy. Her 
escort is Steve Hanebury of Knights of the Valley. 

By Craig S. Meyer 

Bugs Bunny, Speedy Gonzales, 
and Pepe LePew have all won awards. 
Their bodies exist only on celluloid, 
their voices, however, belong to the 
man who spoke here on Saturday 
night of Homecoming Weekend, Mel 

His most famous voice characteri- 
zations, beside the award winners, 
include Foghorn Leghorn, Daffy 
Duck, Porky Pig, Yosemite Sam, 
Coyote and Road Runner, Tweety 
Bird and Sylvester, Elmer Fudd, 
Barny Rubble, Dino, and host of others. 

Started young 

Blanc has made over 3,000 cartoons 
in his 40 years in the business. He 
started doing voices in grammar 
school. "I used to entertain at as- 
semblies. The kids would laugh, and 
the teachers would laugh . . . and 
they'd give me lousy marks." From 
there he moved on to vaudeville where 
at the age of 22, he became the musi- 
cal director of a vaudeville show in 
Oregon. "Music has been very help- 
ful in the making of cartoons, with the 
timing and so on . . ." His musical 
background also includes 8 years of 
violin and playing the tuba in a 
marching band. 

"Bugs" his favorite 

In 1937 Mel Blanc joined Warner 
Brothers. His first voice he created for 
them was that of a drunken bull. Of 
all the voice characterizations he does, 

Bugs Bunny is his favorite. "He's 
(Bugs) the suppressed desire of what 
men would like to do but don't have 
precedent to do." Bugs was originally 
to be called the Happy Rabbit and 
was to say "What's cookin'?". Blanc 
convinced the staff to have him say 
"What's up doc?" and to change his 
name to Bugs Bunny, after his 
creator. Mel Blanc was the first to get 
screen credits for voice characteriza- 

Blanc regretted being "behind the 
scenes" for 40 years until he recently 
recorded a commercial for American 
Express. "Now I can't walk down the 
street without someone yelling, 'Hey, 
you got your express card?' ". He 
says he'd have done it for nothing if 
he'd have known of all the publicity 
he'd receive. 

Mel Blanc expressed concern for 
violence in children's cartoons. 
"Warner Brothers has a parody on 
violence. You'll see the Coyote fall off 
an 8,000 foot cliff, and the next scene 
he's back chasing the road runner." 
He also explained how it takes War- 
ner Brothers 125 people, 9 months to 
create one 6 minute cartoon. 

Captain Caveman, a take-off on 
Charlie's Angels, created by Hanna- 
Barbera, is Blanc's latest newly 
created voice characterization. 

Mel Blanc provided a Saturday 
evening full of laughs and cartoons, 
which was entertaining as well as in- 
formative. Long live Bugs Bunny! T- 
T-T-That's all folks.

Freshman Frolics 

By Nancy Bennett 

For upperclassmen September rep- 
resents returning to the friendships 
and studying that they left here in 
May. For the Freshmen it is filled with 
questions and new experiences, 
namely Freshmen Orientation. 

Their first night on campus was 
filled with a Folk Sing and the intro- 
duction of the local clergy with a Pizza 
Party afterwards, compliments of 

Monday night, after a day of taking 
part in the "Surveys", the Frosh met 
with their big brothers and sisters. 
They later met in the College Center 
parking lot for a folk dance and had 
their first real encounter with the Val- 
ley's unpredictable weather. 

But college life is not all fun and 
games, as the freshmen soon learned 
on Tuesday morning at chaotic and 
confusing registration. Tuesday af- 
ternoon wasn't much easier for them. 
They were given a small guided tour 
of Annville by PROJECT. Unfortu- 
nately, most of them missed the scen- 
ery because they were so busy trying 
to learn names, majors, dorms and 
towns during the hike. 

Wednesday, August 31 was the be- 
ginning for the freshmen, something 
that upperclassmen dread even more 
than "the Plague," the start of classes. 

The Class of '81 experienced the 
"excitement" of this campus their 
very first weekend with a blackout 
during the Coffeehouse on Friday and 
then the agony of defeat at the Quittie 
at the hands of the Sophomores on 

skit night 

The last of Freshmen Orientation 
came on September 10, at the Skit 
Night. All the work of the discussion 
groups was finally displayed that 
night. Skits varied from fairy tales of 
"Little Red Riding Hood" and "Rin- 
dercella" to talented caterpillars, 
chewing gum and chocolate syrup. 
The freshmen obviously studied 
L. V.C. very well because we also saw 
their impressions of President Sam- 
ple, Dean Marquette, Mr. Stanson, 
the Knights, and the sculpture. 

It is a shame that Freshmen Orien- 
tation is over because now the fresh- 
men have nothing to look forward to 
except ten more weeks of classes, En- 
glish Compositions, and exams, pre- 
registration and finals.

Football and 

slow start 

By Ken Hamen 

Lebanon Valley College's football 
team, under the coaching of Lou Sor- 
rentino and co-captained by Chuck 
Blevins and Mike Pearson started 
slowly this year with two consecutive 
losses in the regular season. After an- 
embarrassing trouncing by Widener 
in their first game, 0-28, the Dutch- 
men bounced back to a respectful per- 
formance on the gridiron against Dic- 
kinson on Homecoming Weekend, 
losing by the slim margin of 10-12. 
Since much of the season is left the 
Dutchmen have an excellent chance of 
finishing very successfully. As the 
fall progresses we should look for- 
ward to constant improvement as the 
team gells and new talent is estab- 

Likewise, the Soccer team has not 
dominated the field during the first 
part of the season. Sporting a 1-4-1 
record of their first 6 games, culmi- 
nated by an embarassing 0-3 loss on 
Homecoming Weekend to Dickinson 
and a 0-8 trouncing by Messiah, the 
team still feels confident of a good 
season. Coached by Bruce Correll and 
captained by Dave Baker and Mike 
Brough, the Dutchmen have a 

lot of potential and spirit, and simply 
need to play together more as a team. 
With most of the season ahead and 
remembering such outstanding 
players as Tony Sumo, Paul Keyes, 
Jon Smith, and Dave Baker, the Val- 
ley should look forward to a good 
season with plenty of excitement. 

Hockey Jocks 

By Deb Wiley 

When someone mentions the word 
"hockey" on the LVC campus the 
mixture of responses is truly amaz- 
ing! From most students, one is met 
with a blank stare or a questioning 
shrug: "hockey?" Some conjure up 
images of wild Amazons running 
around, beating each other with 
sticks. But for those dedicated 
females who manage to find them- 
selves out on the field by the tennis 
courts at 4:30 each day, hockey is 
something unique ! Where else can an 
otherwise sane female go nuts run- 
ning all over a field hitting a little 
white ball with a stick? And where 
else can she achieve the extreme satis- 
faction she gets when she finally 
flicks the perfect flick or executes the 
perfect dodge? 

The Hockey Jocks, as some call 
them, are led by their esteemed co- 
captains Linda Opfer and Cindy Fa- 
bian, and coaches Jackie Walters and 
Pat Rudy. Miss Rudy is from Lock 
Haven State College, and with her she 
has brought "system" hockey to 
LVC. This is designed to give more 
freedom of movement to the players, 
and to give more depth to both the 
offense and defense through the 
layering of positions. To go along 
with this new style of play, there are 
many new faces and talents. Three 
freshmen and two transfers are 
sparking the Varsity and blending 
with the talent of six returning letter- 
women to give Lebanon Valley's Wo- 
men's Hockey Team great promise. 
Although the season started off badly 
with losses to both Messiah and 
Franklin & Marshall, a 1-0 
Homecoming victory over Dickinson 
has set the Valley team on the win- 
ning track. So, for those of you who 
are still wondering what Women's 
Hockey is all about, come out and 
watch a game or two — you'll be 
surprised at what you see.

Disc Dissection 

By Craig S. Meyer 

The Alan Parsons Project — I Robot 
"I Robot ... the story of the rise of 
the machine and the decline of man, 
which paradoxically coincided with 
his discovery of the wheel . . . and a 
warning that his brief dominance of 
this planet will probably end, because 
man tried to create robot in his own 
image." Alan Parsons develops this 
theme extensively and craftily in his 
latest LP, I Robot. Combining vocals, 
orchestras, and synthesizers in just the 
right blend, Parsons produces an album of 
high excellence. Best cuts: "I Wouldn't 
Want to be Like You," "Breakdown," 
"Total Eclipse."

freshness of Klaatu which germinated 
in their first release, blooms in full 
glory throughout Hope. Not unlike 
the Beatles, Klaatu creates images, 
illusions, and riddles for the mind, not 
only through their music and lyrics 
but their album jackets as well. 
Klaatu's Hope is our hope, for Klaatu 
recaptures the creative and innovative 
direction in the music scene, which 
was lost in the early 1970's. Best cuts: 
"Long Live Polotzania," "The 
Loneliest Creature in the Universe,"

1/ ' 

By Steve Gomm 

What are those "funny" green 
objects painted on the sidewalks and 
steps all over campus? What purpose 
do they serve? Who is the Green 
Avenger trying to avenge? 

You may have asked yourself 
these or similar questions and never had 
the satisfaction of an answer. Well the 
Green Avenger would like to answer 
your questions. I was fortunate enough 
to obtain an interview with this myster- 
ious person (identity withheld by 
request), in which he candidly talked 
about his purpose and message to the 
college community. 

The Green Avenger. is an obvious 
take-off on the Red Avenger; that 
wonderful soul who instills LVC pride 
in our hearts every year at Homecoming 
by beautifying the Campus with a new 
coat of red paint. However, aside from 
claiming no connection with the Red 
Avenger, the Green Avenger feels that 
he has by far outclassed the midnight 
cardinal in art work and social signifi- 

Our Green friend is expressing 

his dissatisfaction with the Marijuana 
laws in our society and the LVC policy 
that reflects these laws. He feels that 
these are an infringement upon personal 
freedoms. The Green Avenger hopes 
that this peaceful, visual protest will 
indicate that there is a viewpoint on 
marijuana other than that expressed by 
the Administration and society. He 
also hopes that his leaves of green will 
indicate to prospective students that 
LVC is not totally pristine; certain vices 
do exist on this campus. 

Respects Property 

The Green Avenger claims that 
he has tried to avoid damaging property. 
Although he has painted on concrete 
steps and sidewalks, he feels that unlike 
the work of the Red Avenger, his mark 
is pleasing ot the eye. 

Some of us may disagree with 
Green Avenger's taste in art; some of 
us may disagree with his opinions and 
some of us may wish he would just go 
away. The Green Avenger however, 
claims that he will continue. Therefore, 
don't be surprised to see a new decora- 
tion on your doorstep tomorrow.

student drama 

By Liz Steele 

Moth° n December 7 at 8:00 P- m - The 
Pre house > an original drama, will be 
p rod ented in the LVC theatre. Written, 
mores'ry' directed and acted by sopho- 
The iu * ane ^ongdon and Laura Nelson, 
dram ther house is a psychological 
am -a of family life. 

m ajo r LaUra and Diane are English 
th e th W * 1 ° are very mucn interested in 
g 0al eatr e (although Laura's vocational 
i n t , les in the ministry.) Laura starred 
earlier ? roduction of Knock, Knock 
in i a J tnis vear > and Diane was a dancer 

s Pnng's musical Anything Goes. 
Th e m au thorship and production of 
study °* herh °use is an independent

°Ppo r t, e lnterested in seeking their own 

unities here. "We're doing what 

we're interested in," Diane said, as op- 
posed to working only within the regu- 
larly set English courses. 

The Motherhouse is the story of 
two young women who are living alone 
after being deserted -by their parents, 
and are struggling to cope with this 
desertion. It is a strongly symbolic and 
psychological drama, representative of 
many girls' views on life. Diane portrays 
Maggie, an affection-craving girl who 
turns to prostitution, and Laura takes 
the role of Susan, her emotionally dis- 
turbed sister. Also acting in the play will 
be Jim Cebulka, one of Maggie's seduc- 
tors, Ken Reichman as Maggie's boy- 
friend who has been in the army, and 
Collins Mikesell as the personification 
of Susan's teddy bear. The 8:00 
production is open to the entire campus

I arrived at the grove a little . . . 
\ well, let me say that pain was not one 
of my major concerns. But what I was 
about to see would change all that. 

At first, while standing in line for 
the wonderful root beer they serve at 
those parties, I noticed nothing in par- 
ticular out of the ordinary, except that 
the guy dressed in green had a rifle and 
t the girl next to him had a revolver. But 
I you come to expect these things. I wait- 
| ed in line for a very long time, partly 
because of some one with teased flame- 
| orange hair and a horribly distorted face 
kept butting in. Ordinarly I would have 
said something but I think he was 
I friends with the guy with the gun, so I 
kept quiet and waited my turn. 

After I had a couple of glasses of 
that delicious root beer they serve at 
those parties, I noticed some strange 
goings on. There were a lot of clowns 
there. I mean real clowns with funny 
noses, grease paint, and weird, loose 
fitting, polka dotted outfits. For a 
moment I thought the circus was in 
town. Especially when the guy with the 
horses head walked past. 

My attention was then redirected 
by two of the ugliest cheerleaders walk- 
ing through the door. I mean they were 
UGLY. They made my aunt with the 
moustache look good. Now let me 
explain something, all my life I was led 
to believe that cheerleaders were the 
beauties of this particular school. Well 
God help L.V.C. They must have never 
shaved their legs. I speak no lie when 
I say that in a hairy leg contest these 
two could put a gorilla to shame. 

It was then I realized that there 
were three people claiming to be Mike 
Pearson. Obviously two were imposters. 
Three Mike Pearsons would be impos- 
sible. I reasoned it out that the fellow 
with the pumpkin for a head (who kept 
moaning something about his sister 

having a candle for brains) was not the 
true Mike Pearson nor was the fellow 
who had a box for a head. The fellow 
with the box head had "BLOCKHEAD" 
written on his forehead for some reason. 

More glasses of root beer. The 
evening was getting quite muddled and 
I was having a hard time making sense 
of the whole affair. Some fool covered 
with tin foil was dancing with a clown. 
A strange perosn with two heads was 
falling down. And those ugly cheerlead- 
ers were always dancing with other girls - 
Humm. (Although the way they looked 
it was probably the only way they 
they would ever get to dance, but the 
slow ones too?) This party had the bar 
scene from Star Wars beat six ways to 
Sunday. Bonnie and Clyde were whoop- 
ing it up by the keg, a guy with a .308 
was playing with his scope, and a bunch 
of farmers who came must have brought 
their scarecrow with them (Who, by the 
way, was losing straw), it was almost too 
much. Sailors and sickies, blond Arabes 
and big black bats, orderlies and alumni; 
something was going on here! 

About then, when my taxed little 
mind was about to short circuit, the 
lights came on and the band stopped 
playing. Some of the normal looking 
people lined a few of the stranger of the 
crowd up in front and we were told to 
clap for the one we liked best. That's 
when it hit me. It was a costume party. 
It's halloween! The guy with pumpkin 
head won. And I breathed a sigh of 
relief. All of these strange people were 
costumed - 1 hope. 

After my startling realization, I 
made my way back to the keg of 
marvously refreshing, wonderfully de- 
licious root beer that they serve at those 
parties, where I somehow became bar- 
tender and spent the remainder of the 
evening saying, "One for you and a shot 
for the bartender." 


Formations, LVC's prospective li- 
terary magazine, held its first meeting 
on Monday, October 24, and according 
to its co-editors things are finally getting 

Formations is the brainchild of 
sophomore English major Diane Cong- 
don. As freshmen, Diane and co-editor 
Liz Steele found a lack of creative 
outlets for students here, both within 
academic courses and without: the 
English department offers only one crea- 
tive writing course and Art 140 (Studio 
Drawing and Painting) is the only op- 
portunity for students with an artistic 
bent to express themselves. Until now 
the Green Blotter club and photography 
club were the only extra-curricular or- 
ganizations available for collective crea- 
tivity. Formations hopes to provide the 
entire campus community with an 
opportunity to express themselves in 
whatever mode they choose: poetry, 
short fiction, photography, and artwork. 
Any student is welcome to contribute. 
The end product will be a yearly antho- 
logy published in booklet form, of the 
best works chosen from all those sub- 
mitted, with an emphasis on quality 
rather than quantity. 

Organizational Difficulties 

Since its conception, Formations 
had encountered numerous organization- 
al difficulties, most notably the debate 
in student council and elsewhere as to 
whether or not an organization like 
Formations was really needed when the 
more informal literary organization, 
Green Blotter, already existed. Form- 
ations' main purpose - to provide LVC 
with a literary publication - was even- 
tually deemed different enough from 
Green Blotter's to allow its existence, 
and the editors feel that having over- 
come the initial obstacles there should 
be little problem in producing a high- 
quality publication students can be 
proud of. 

Met to organize. 

The first meeting was called in 
order to organize the basic foundations 
of Formations and to explain the hopes 
and ideas of its co-editors. Dr. Ford 
attended as advisor, and made some 
suggestions as to organization. Ken 
Haman, running unopposed, was elected 
Secretary-Treasurer. The main topic of 
discussion was the concept of an edi- 
torial board. As explained by the 
co-editors, the board will consist of 
four to six qualified individuals who will 
meet on a monthly basis to determine 
what works submitted are of a quality 
high enough to meet Formations' stan- 
dards. The board will be selected by 
the co-editors and advisor on a basis of 
works prospective members have submit- 
ted. The editors and advisor themselves 
will not sit on the board but will rather 
have final determination as to what will 
be included in Formations.

August 28: College - the high school 
senior's Never-Never Land ... a place 
where you're finally on your own to 
make your own rules . . . where the 
beer flows as freely as water . . . where 
nobody knows you or your business . . . 
where the biggest problem is deciding 
which party to go to when . . . where 
you can take courses you're interested 
in - the ones you've been taking "college 
prep" for for the past 4 years . . . where 
your schedule, your social activities, 
your life are all up to you - this is 

October 28: And then you wake up 8 
weeks into your first semester at LVC: 
This is college?! A place where there are 
even rules about rules . . . where beer is 
one of the foulest four-letter words . . . 
where everyone knows what you're do- 
ing before you do it . . . where the 
problem isn't "which party?" but "what 
party?" . . . where you discover you're 
in for still another year of Spanish and 
English and gym . . . and good God, your 
mother even let you have your boyfriend 
in 'til 1:00, they won't even let him in 
the door after 12:00 here! This is 

No, my dear freshman, this is the 
Valley, and seldom the twain shall meet. 
And so to the rude awakening and the 
natural freshman reaction to same: "I 
hate it here!" 

"You'll have this," upperclassmen 
say (as they cheerfully inform you that 
you'll never make it through finals week 
alive), "at small, private, co-educational 
church-related, liberal-arts colleges." It 
comes with the rain. The rain and the 
traditions. (Where would we be without 
LVC traditions?) So hate it. And 
complain, if it helps you. And if it's 
bad enough, try to get out. But give 
it a chance. We all hate it sometimes, 
but despite the rain, gossip, rules, re- 
quirements, traditions and work, it's not 
all that bad. And it is, after all, what 
you make it. 


By Gary Barnes 

The question of intervisitation is a 
touchy one. Many students want com- 
plete, total 24 hr. intervisitation, while 
others like it the way it is. The 
general fallacy among students is that 
the Board of Trustees is against the 
students. But the real problem is that 
student 's views differ on the subject. By 
asking twenty random students how they 
felt on the subject of intervisitation, I 
got many conflicting views, and many 
worthwhile suggestions concerning re- 
vision of the rules. 

The intervisitation rules as they 
exist now allow intervisitation on week- 
days 6 p.m. - 11 p.m., Fridays, 4 p.m. - 
2 a.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. - 2 a.m., and 
Sundays 10 a.m. - 1.1 p.m. 

"Intervisitation at LVC provides 
the opportunity for persons of the op- 
posite sex to visit in an individual's 
residence hall room under two conditions 
that are always present, namely (1) with- 
in the stated hours as amended by the 
Board of Trustees on May 17, 1974, and 
(2) under an escort system that requires 
a host or hostess from that residence 
hall to accompany the visitor to the 
non-public restricted area of the residence 
hall t<$ which he/she has been invited". 

Compromise Suggested 

Of the twenty students, ten 
thought the rules should be abolished, 
and ten thought they should be revised.' 
Some of the suggestions are very plaus- 
ible, and suggest that a compromise 
could be attained. 

On the subject of weekday hours 
it was generally agreed that the hours 
should begin earlier in the day, such as 
noon, or 2:00 p.m. This probably would 
not cause any problems, except a 
possible noise problem. But those who 
are noisy are violating another rule, and 
should be dealt with accordingly. If it 
was understood that noise would not be 
tolerated, early afternoon hours on 
weekdays may be plausible. 

Concerning weekend hours, many 
suggestions were made. Some suggested 
24 hour intervisitation from Friday to 
Sunday, while others recommended it 
only for men's dormitories. Others 
suggested that the escort system should 
be abolished for the weekends. 

When asked about locking girls 
dormitories, most people said this was 
good protection against potential crimin- 
als. One suggestion was that the back 
doors of the dormitories be open during 
the afternoon. When I asked other girls 
about this, they generally agreed that 
it was a terrible inconvenience. 

Partial Restriction 

A suggestion worth pondering is to 
have a few dormitories with restrictions, 

and others without. This offers a 
solution to conflicting student desires. 
Under this system it would be possible 
to require freshman to live in restricted 
dormitories, and then make their own 
decision about the next year. For those 
who wish to remain in a restricted dorm, 
they may, while others may rather live 
in an unrestricted dormitory. 

To demand 24 hour intervisitation 
right now is unrealistic. But couldn't 
we have revisions, such as those men- 
tioned? While other small private colleges 
have co-ed dorms, and more are changing 
all the time, is it too much to ask for 
more hours, and unlocked back doors? 
I think that those students who want 
intervisitation should get it. It can be 
done without imposing on those who are 
opposed to it.

social-life and if we don't like our present situation, let's do something about it! 
So many of us sit on our academic "tushies" for three or four years, feeling 
depressed, intimidated and angry about what does or doesn't happen at this 
college. Well enough is enough and it's time for us mature, literate adults to 
tell the administration, student government and committees what we would like 
and what we expect from them. 

To help get our opinions on various social issues, this column will try to 
inform and explain campus decisions and events which concern us. But as always 
it will ask something in return. Please RESPOND to these articles and get those 
apathetic friends we have to respond, too. Answer the poll questions and write a 
letter or an article of rebuttal, but "be a Joe," care a little and help make LVC 
an enjoyable experience. Help get the freedom and responsibilities college adults 
of the 1970's deserve and live up to those responsibilities. 

"The chances of an on-campus rock concert this year are pretty bleak," 
says Student Council member Don Keller. On campus concerts have repeatedly 
had low ticket sales and thus lost large amounts of money, more than we can 

However, Student Council tried something new last year: underwritin? 
tickets at local concerts in Hershey Park and other nearby colleges whicli 
proved successful. Concensus of opinion was favorable to the underwriting 
because LVC students were able to see several concerts during the second 
semester and could buy the tickets at a student rate, usually $2.00 less than the 
door price. Transportation was provided by the college on chartered buses, at 
no extra charge. 

Past concerts included Billy Joel, Kansas, Jethro Tull, and others, 
our support, Student Council will probably continue to underwrite concerts this 
year, but they need our opinions as to how many students are interested and 
who/where we would like to see/go. 

Al Marie, Student Council representative in charge of concert underwrite' 
endeavoured to get tickets for the past E.L.P. concert at Hershey but was una 1 
because of a lack of information on scheduled concerts at that time. But 
our help, Student Council will try to get tickets for upcoming concerts,*

Disc Dissection 

By Craig S. Meyer 

Chicago consistent as the tidg) Chicago 

s up with an album which flows 
f \L your speakers with smooth jazz 
k - XI happens to be no exception, 
fficago has that blend which can bend 
r m funky to classical to baUad with- 
out ever sounding forced or fake. 'Take 
°t Uptown" is a funky city rhythm cut, 
» is 'Take Me Back To Chicago", which 
3 orp0 rates Chaka Khan's spicy voice in 
L arrangement. "Mississippi Delta 
L es " demonstrates Chicago's style of 
Leo blues, while 'This Time" sounds 
like classic, old style Chicago love ballad. 
Along the political line, Lamm, Kath, 
Pankow and Co. reflect on the recent 
1976 Presidential campaign with "Vote 
For Me". Divulging into different lines, 
"Policeman" sounds like the theme of a 
current TV cop show; and 'Till the End 
of Time" echos the 50's style with 
Charlie Rich style piano, all a la Chicago. 
From a long line of platinum sellers XI 
may be the most fully orchestrated. 
The strictly orchestral piece 'The Inner 
Struggles of Man" blends into "Prelude 
(Little One)" and "Little One" which all 
resembles early Moody Blues. "Baby 
What a Big Surprise", their single release, 
is nothing new for Chicago. The cut 
exemplifies almost every Chicago hit - 
write a good hook and repeat it for 
several minutes. 

Elton John - Greatest Hits Volume II 

He's run out of ideas and motiva- 
tion again!?! 

Carpenters - Passage 

A group must grow as it progresses 
through the years, and the Carpenters 
have just learned that rock rule. For 
several years the Carpenters have been 
producing mediocre discs which were 

like bland mashed potatoes compared to 
their earlier albums like A Song For You. 
Passage, however, is like a well prepared 
potpourri or musical smorgasboard (it 
took three months to produce). Karen 
and Richard traverse the chordal spec- 
trum, from Harry Belefonte's "Man 
Smart, Woman Smarter" calypso to a 
portion from the rock opera Evita. Evita, 
written by Webber and Rice (Jesus 
Christ Superstar), is the story of Eva 
Peron, who's husband was ruler of Ar- 
gentina. The biggest surprise is their 
single release, "Calling Occupants of 
Interplanetary Craft". This Klaatu tune 
is done with such style and perspective 
that it rivals the original. 

Appearing on this cut and several 
others are the Gregg Smith Singers who 
appeared in Lebanon County several 
years ago through the Lebanon Com- 
munity Concert Association, j Also ap- 
pearing on this album is Peter Knight 
who did work for Moody Blues and Lee 
Ritenour, Tom Scott, and Leon Russell. 
Passage takes us from a well worn path 
of the past to a world of diversity. This 
LP "makes up an oeuvre in which all 
pieces fit, in which daring adventurous- 
ness and taste have equal place". 

Elvis Presley - Elvis in Concert 

As we see yet another Presley LP, 
some epitaph somewhere should read: 
"Here lies musical taste beneath the 
moons, Beaten to death by Elvis tunes." 

Dolly Parton — Here You Come Again 

Dear Dolly may be big at some 
things, but she has yet to hit it big in the 
pop field. This album brings her a 
desperate step closer, by using more weH 
known songwriters and stronger arrange- 
ments. "Here You Come Again", 
"Sweet Music Man" and 'Two Doors 
Down" are among her stronger cuts.

Do you know what Gang Green, 
Silver Streaks, Silver Dungeon Rats or

v °u thought, you are wrong. They are 
some of the teams that participated in 
w °men's Intramural Volleyball. 

Twelve teams in all signed up and 
were divided into two leagues. Each 
a gue competed in a round-robin tour-

b m, the four best teams were the 

est of the West and the Spiked Bunch 

th v UC A ' and the Silver S P ikers and 
Stvir B ' Colle g iat es in League B. The 
P«ed Bunch and the V. B. Collegiates 

emerged champs of their respective 
leagues and were destined to battle it out 
in the championship play-off on October 
26, at 9:30 p.m. 

Collegiates Handicapped 

On the night of the championship, 
the V. B. Collegiates were met with a 
serious predicament - only four mem- 
bers of the team showed up and a 
minimum of six players is needed. By 
10:00 the V. B. Collegiates decided to 
play, despite their handicap. 

The V. B. Collegiates overcame 
their handicap and surprised everyone 
by winning the first game, 15-6. The 
second game was close, but the Col- 
legiates were once again victorious over 
the Spiked Bunch with a score of 
15 - 13.

teams, poorly against weak teams, and usually not well 
enough in crucial situations. However, the Dutchmen 
squad includes many young players and the team should 
do well in the future'.' See THE QUAD's Christmas

The LVC golf team had a rather 
slow start this year. In the three 
tournaments entered in the fall, they 
had one 5th place finish and ended up 
6th in the other two. The regular season 
matches will be in the spring, along 
with M. A. C. qualifying tournaments. 

This year's team is: Scott Carney, 
Senior; John Champlin, Soph. (Co cap-

After 12 games the Valley soccer 
team's record stands at 2 - 9 - 1. The 
Dutchmen have been competitive in 
every game but an offensive production 
of only six goals has hindered their 

While Coach Carrell is not exactly 
happy with his team's performance so 
far this season, he's not completely 
dissatisfied, either. "Our lack of offen- 
sive punch has been disappointing, " 
states Carrell, "but we've had good 
defense and excellent goalkeeping." The 

team's two victories, both 1-0, came 
over Baptist Bible on Sept. 10 and 
Delaware Valley on Oct. 5. The Valley 
played Lancaster Bible to a 1 - 1 tie on 
Sept. 14. In summing up the team's 
present situation Carrell says, "We're a 
young team, we'll continue to improve 
as we gain experience." The team has 
only three seniors, goalkeeper Fetchko 
and fullbacks Dave Baker and Mark 
Hebda. . . senior fullback Evan Shourds 
suffered a knee injury in preseason and 
has seen no action thus far.

The annual race for the supremacy 
trophy has begun once again. The 
results up to this point find KALO and 
Resident-Commuters tied for first with 
12 points. Philo in third with 10 points, 
and APO a close fourth with 9V2 points. 
KALO accumulated their points with a 
perfect 5 - record in football. The 
"Green Machine" outscored its oppo* 
nents by a margin of 164 to 19 and 
ended Philo's four year dominance of 
the sport. Philo (4 - 1), however, did 
finish second with APO (3-2) taking 

Residents lead again 

Meanwhile the Resident-Commu- 
ters took first place in cross country for 
the seventh time in the last eight years. 
Steve Smith paced the residents by 
taking first place with a time of 1 7 min- 
utes - 10 seconds over the 3.1 mile 
course. Rocky Calvo (Philo) crossed 
the finish line 20 seconds later with 
Joe Reed (Frosh) placing third from the 
field of 27 runners. In the team 
standings, the Freshmen took a surpris- 
ing second while the Faculty claimed 
third. However, the race for the supre- 
macy trophy has a long way to go and 
it promises to be interesting. Come 
out and support Intramural Sports! 
Your involvement makes them go.

returning letterwomen and an unsurpassed number of newly found play-

The Lebanon Valley College Jazz 
Band will conduct its 1978 concert tour 
from January 4 through the 14. The 
band will make a swing through Pennsyl- 
vania, Delaware, Maryland, and New 
Jersey. One of the engagements includes 
the band leader's hometown of River 
Edge, N.J., which is only eight miles 
from New York City. 

With the coffee hour debut out of 
the way and the tour ard February 
concert rapidly approaching, Jazz Band 
leader, Ken Levinsky was glad to disclose 
some insights into this year's band. 
When the auditions took place, Ken said 
he was mainly looking for players who 
were versatile. "I wanted every trumpet 
player in the section capable of playing 
lead in at least one or two numbers if 
they had to, which would of course 
require having a good range. And at 
least one player who can take a good 
ride." Before auditions Ken was most 
worried about the trumpet section, since 
so many of last year's players would not 
be back. His fears, however, were 
unfounded; "Fortunately, the freshman 
class this year is extremely talented." 

Levinsky pointed out that this 
year's band has many new faces. "My 
freshman year, two freshman made the 
Jazz Band, and I wasn't one of them. 
This year, I'm the only senior in the 
band!" He also made some hopes for 
the future. "Since I'm the only senior 
in the band, theoretically, next year's 
band should be better than this year's 
band." Ken said that at least eleven 
people that were in the band last year 
are not in this year; because they gradu- 
ated or for other reasons. This is a very 
substantial portion of the Jazz Band. 
When asked how this basiclaly fresh 

band was coagulating, Kevinsky replied: 
"Most of us had not played together 
before. The people that had been in the 
band remembered Spring Arts and the 
general sound of the band. And they 
were discouraged in the beginning. They 
were wondering if we'll make it with the 
new sound. But I think the people work 
better under pressure. And I think that 
the Coffee Hour was motivation for 
them to stop griping and get down to 

Anyone that was present will cer- 
tainly attest to the fact that the Jazz 
Band did a very successful Coffee Hour. 
"I thought the coffee hour was tremend- 
ous." But Ken did qualify his content- 
ment with the Coffee Hour; "I consider 
the Coffee Hour as only the scrimmage, 
with the big game being the tour and the 
February concert." Rocky, Star is Born 
medley (arranged'by former band leader, 
Buzz Jones), and Maynard Ferguson's 
Give It One, are considered as some of 
the band's best numbers to date by 
Levinsky. Ken admits that "we may 
have fewer tunes (than last year) but of 
more advanced caliber of tunes, because 
of the band's ability." 

For members of the Jazz Band, the 
tour dates are rapidly approaching. Ken 
expressed a hope that "all the people 
that live around all the areas where we're 
going to be touring ... can all come to 
the concert." For Ken and all the J-Band 
members the tour is an extremely re- 
warding experience. And like most 
artistic jazz players, Levinsky hopes that 
jazz is finally taking its respectable place 
in the music field, "it's gradually becom- 
ing a more acceptable art form." If the 
tour is as successful as Coffee Hour, the 
Jazz Band will have no trouble being 
accepted and congradulated by all ap- 
preciative jazz lovers.

President Sample announced a 9.1% in- 
crease in total costs for resident students 
in a campus convocation on November 
21. The .changes, greatest of which is an 
11% tuition hike, will go into effect in 
the fall- semester of 1978. 

Spiraling utilities, Social Security, and 
insurance costs were cited as the chief 
culprits in this year's increases. Sample 
also emphasized the college's desire to 
maintain current academic standards, 
student services, and student / faculty 

The President reiterated the statistic that 
in terms of 1967 dollars, there has been 
a decrease of $57.23 in real cost of the 
total bill from 1967 to 1977. This 
figure, derived by one of Dr. C. F. J. 
Tom's Economics 110 classes, reflects 

true change in cost, compensating for 
fluctuations in money value. 

There was some encouraging news in 
Sample's potpourri of announcements. 
The student wage will increase from $2 
to $2.25, effective this January. A 
humanities major will become available 
in the future. Plans are proceeding for 
the new science center, and it was 
emphasized that none of the fee increase 
es will go to that project. 

The President also appealed on behalf 
of the Buildings and Grounds Depart- 
ment for cooperation in maintaining 
the campus lawns. It was requested that 
the college community stay off the grass 
as much as possible during the critical 
fall weeks when the ground is soft from 
rains and not yet frozen. 

The J-Band "Jazzes-up" a LIV.C. coffee house. 



In the interest of furthering the 
recent push for a bonified, broadcasting, 
radio station, the radio club wishes LVC 
students to show their support for the 
radio station: by writing Dean Mar- 
quette, or President Sample. 

WLVC can become a reality with 
your help. 85% of the students polled 
were in favor of starting a broadcasting 
radio station at LVC. Only 6% of those 
polled were opposed, and many of those 
6% were opposed because they felt the 
monies received should be spent in other 
areas such as the library, the cafeteria, 
or the gymnasium. 

The funds requested however are 
minimal, and are received from student 
activity fees, donations and gifts, in 
addition to funding from the college 
budget. Several stores in Annville/Pal- 
myra/Cleona area are willing, to give 
WLVC wholesale prices on stereo equip- 
ment and records, but President Sample 
will give the majority of the funding 
from the college budget. The estimate is 
that the college will donate $6,000. It is 
a small price to pay for the services the 
station will render. 

Two broadcast managers, Chuck 
Etter and Joel Deaner say the station 
will try to broadcast from 10 a.m. to 
3 a.m. each day. This will allow college 
information, news, and weather to be 
broadcast to all the dorms 17 hours a 
day, as well as the broadcasting of all

Denver Henning, the stocky, white- 
haired custodian of Keister Hall sat in 
the small janitor's room taking his mid- 
day break. His thick white hair was 
combed straight back, and he wore a 
T-shirt and work slacks. As he sat down 
for his interview, he reached on the shelf 
for a brown bag of unsweetened chewing 
tobacco. "Since I was sick, I can't 
afford to smoke anymore," he said with 
a pained expression. "It really kills you." 

When Denver came to the Valley 
in 1972 at the age of 60, he had just 
gotten back on his feet after a three 
year bout with his recurring diabetes. 
Although he had worked all his life, he 
didn't feel quite ready to give it up yet. 
"If you work all your life, it's all you 
know. The worst thing for you is not to 
work while you still can.", he stated 

Work is certainly no stranger to 
Denver. In his earlier days he was a 
successful meatman, as well as one of the 
leading aluminum contractors in the 
Lebanon* area: In fact, he helped Jim 
McCluskey, the biggest aluminum dealer 

types of music. Sports information and 
eventually sports broadcasting are in 
planning for the future, but first the 
station must get off the ground, and it 
needs student support. 

The station will be an AM carrier 
current station. This means it will 
broadcast through electrical power lines, 
not over radio waves, and is therefore 
available to all dormitories through any 
electrical outlet. Radio reception should 
have minimal to no static interference, 
even when appliances such as hair dryers 
and refrigerators are in use in neighbor- 

Mr. R. J. Harris has been working 
with Chuck and Joel, and feels confident 
that the mono reception on AM carrier 
current is quite good. Mr. Harris has 
installed and worked with carrier current 
in the past, and helped Temple U. 
initiate their carrier current system. 

Like most other colleges, LVC 
hopes that carrier current radio will be a 
stepping stone to FM stereo; hopefully 
in three to seven years. 

Because carrier current is not trans- 
mitted by radio waves, it is not subject 
to F.C.C. licensing, nor are carrier cur- 
rent disc jockies subject to licensing. 
Thus, all students at LVC could broad- 
cast after a short preliminary instruction. 
The Radio Club (WLVC) hopes to start 
broadcasting carrier current next year 
with a fixed staff of twenty members, 
but WLVC cannot start without the 
funds from the college, and President 
Sample's permission. 

The funding is a small amount and 
the gains for the students and the prestige 
of the college are great. Please help the 
Radio Club become a radio reality rather 
than a cafeteria menagerie. Help WLVC 
bring news, information and music to 
the dorms daily. Please respond this 
week (!) and send your letters to Dean 
Marquette, President Sample, or WLVC 
(room E207 Funkhouser Hall). Thanks 
from the Radio Club.

Since the issue of pets on campus 
ems to be the dominating issue in 
se ny areas, including this newspaper, 
J e staff decided to go right to the 
lource and ask the pets themselves how 
!L y feel about our campus and some 
f the rules we live by. As it turns out, 
not only did the pets have strong feelings 
bout their position on campus, they 
jlso wished to speak on some of the 
other issues facing the student body and 
the administration of our school. 

The pets we interviewed expressed 
man y different opinions, however all but 
two refused to let their opinions be 
printed. Fortunately their feelings seem 
to express the general attitudes most 
nets have toward campus issues. The 
two pets we interviewed were George - 
a middle-aged female white laboratory 
ra t and G.R. (Goofy Rat), an animal 
of the same persuasion. 

Both George and G.R. lived on or 
in the vicinity of Third Floor West 
Funkhouser (Penthouse West) during one 
part of this semester. As a result of the 
school policy toward pets they have 
since been forced to find other accomo- 

dations. When asked about their feelings 
both rats responded unfavorably toward 
this policy and expressed a strong desire 
to return to their former homes. G.R. 
sums up their feelings by stating, "Why, 
you can't even get a good whisky sour 
in the Bio-building!" 

Along the same lines, both rodents 
support definite opinions on the drinking 
issue on campus. George is a self- 
proclaimed lush, favoring beer especially, 
wrule G.R. is somewhat more conserva- 
tive. Brandy, whisky sours, and only an 
occasional brew cross her pallet. George 
feels that "I live by a basic philosophy: 
I drink therefore I am!" 

As far as the increase in tuition 
is concerned, both rats feel little emo- 
tion one way or another as their mutual 
father holds a permanent position on the 
staff of the college. In regards to the 
intervisitation rules, the two were reluc- 
tant to comment on any human relation- 
ships. George, however, spoke freely 
on her own activities; "I spent the long 
weekend (Thanksgiving) with four old 
friends. I don't see anything wrong 
with intervisitation as long as it is 
between consenting adults over six weeks 
of age!"

Something is definitely in the air 
these days. Perhaps you too have been 
observing several strange phenomena at 
LVC of late. The symptoms include: 

A strange white substance falling out 
of the sky, causing students to look up 
in confusion and say "Where's the rain?" 

The new shrubbery which has sprouted 
in the center; 

The departure of turkeys (well . . . 
some of them) to be replaced by tinsel; 

The incessant hammerings at typewrit- 
ers as all of the papers are wrapped up; 

The countdown - "10-9-8 more days 
of classes;" 

President Sample's annual open-invita- 
tion "Tuition is going up" party in 
Tuesday Chapel; 

It can only mean one thing - 
ready or not Christmas is coming to the 
Valley and accompanying it is the typi- 
cal mad rush . . . how to find the time to 
finish the papers, take the tests, do the 
work and pass finals, too ... or find a 
dress, a sub (should they make you 
work), or a date for the dance . . . The 
semester went too fast and none of us 
are ready, but somehow we may get by 
in spite of it all and even find a minute 
to relax and enjoy the holidays. Merry

Yes, one can get in to see President 
Sample. In fact, my appointment was 
granted within two days; so, let's do 
away with the old adage of never getting 
in to see the president. 

The first question pertained to the 
pet policy here at LVC. President Sam- 
ple stated that the present policy is un- 
der the jurisdiction of Dean Marquette 
and that any questions should be direc- 
ted to him. Another subject under Dean 
Marquette's supervision was that of whe- 
ther a counselor's first responsibility is 
that of a counselor or a policeman. Pres- 
ident Sample recognized that the job of 
being a counselor is extremely difficult, 

but that the counselor's discretion should 
generally be directed more towards 
helping the students in his charge, rather 
than hindering them. 

Another topic discussed was the 
Student Judiciary Board. The President 
feels that this system has a higher success 
potential because it is a "more humane, 
intelligent, and right-protecting" app- 
roach toward dealing with infractions of 
the student conduct code. Furthermore, 
he is pleased with the new set-up for 
appeals. The new system spells out the 
student's obligations and removes the 
President himself from any other judicial 
group, so that he is entitled to his own 
judgement of each case. 

in Lebanon, get started in the business. 
Although they were both very lucrative 
businesses, his face shows no regret or 
bitterness because of his loss. He seems 
to be content with where he is and what 
,he's doing. 

Since starting at Keister, people 
have taken a natural liking to Denver. 
Having lived such a full life he is 
qualified to advise anyone on almost any 
aspect of life. He is greatly appreciated 
by the students and the feeling is mutual. 
"I have to admit, the money I make 
here certainly isn't an incentive to work. 
But I don't do it just for the money. 
It's the kids. They keep you young.", 
he said, giving the distinct impression of 
a proud father beaming over his children. 

With this rapport, Denver has be- 
come something more than just a janitor. 
He is a friend and advisor to those who 
take the time to know him. In fact, 
he's even been invited to a few parties. 
"They've (Kalo) asked me to come to a 
couple of parties but I couldn't accept. 
It feels good to be asked just the same." 

This is what's so special about 
Denver - doing his job and taking it one 
step further. Adding a touch of person- 
ality to an otherwise thankless job. 


Just prior to this issue's deadline, I had the priviledge of having an 
appointment with the DEAN OF STUDENTS. Although the appointment had 
been scheduled for different reasons, (some quibbling misunderstanding between 
my floor councilor and myself) the Dean and I soon found ourselves discussing 
entirely different matters (much to my relief). As our conversation continued he 
explained his positive feelings toward THE QUAD and our new format. He 
continued by revealing that the administration also appreciates our literary 
endeavors and hopes for the continuation of the publication. As usual his kind 
words toward THE QUAD warmed my heart and sparked such feelings of 
gratitude that I only briefly mentioned our desperate need of funds. On that 
depressing note we soon found ourselves involved in a lengthy discussion on my 
future (however bleak) and my continuing education in general. As my appoint- 
ment drew to a close and I left the plush inner-office I found myself inspired to 
put down my feelings in words. 

Actually, my reasons for this article are not to bore you with such meaning- 
less drivel as preceeded. Instead, I wish to simply address myself to a more 
"pertinent" student concern - the administration of our dear college. Many 
students here feel as if there is some sort of battle raging between "we" and 
"they", as if for some reason sides have been chosen and the "elders" are trying 
their hardest to make our education miserable. Up until recently I include myself 
in this group, for until my appointment with THE DEAN I did not harbor many 
good feelings toward much of the administration. However, having had my 
opinions changed, here and now I simply state: 

These people are human! They are trying to do a job, and if 
more of the people who continuously complain about conditions 
here will simply take their "constructive criticism" to the proper 
administrator, perhaps they could do their job a little better The 
least a student would xeceive would be a list of good reasons for or 
against their opinion and the respect any student deserves from a 
school official. Maturity and cooperation are the key words 
Maturity on the part of the student body and cooperation on the 
part of both "sides". 

Now, many of my contemporaries will read my statement and quickly shout 
"Brown-nose", "-kisser", and other cute (but unprintable) phrases. To those 
people I have little to say. My point is clear - rules we will always have, 
complaints too. But if rules must be broken, then responsibility must be taken 
by the "mature" people who break them. If complaints must be made, they must 
be reasonable and taken to the right authorities. Is this so much to ask???

The LVC football Dutchmen com- 
pleted their season with an impressive 
21-10 victory over Western Maryland. 
It was a game in which the gridders 
finally played well, consistently, and up 
to their potential. But, the season over- 
all was a disappointing one. It seems 
that the team played well against strong 
teams, poorly against weak teams, and 
usually not well enough in crucial situ- 
ations. Still, the 3-6 season was an ex- 
citing one in which we saw many out- 
standing individual efforts. 

The Dutchmen opened their season 
against an overpowering Widener team 
which has since worked its way to the 
top. The Pioneers ended their season on 
Dec. 3 with a 39-36 victory over Wabash 
in the Division III National Champion- 
ship game. At Chester, in September, 
the Dutchmen became the Pioneers' first 
victim by the score of 28-0. It was the 
only game in which our team was out- 

Next the Valley took on a good 
Dickinson team before a wet home- 
coming crowd. This was the first of a 
series of close and disappionting losses. 
After leading 10-0 through three quar- 
ters, the team went to defeat, 12-10. 

On Oct. 1 the Dutchmen travelled 
to play Ursinus, perhaps the weakest 
team in the division. In a torrential 
downpour neither team could move 
offensively until the Golden Bears scored 

on a long, broken, pass play. Ursinus 
broke its 14 game losing streak by 
defeating our boys 10-7. 

The following week saw LVC win 
its first game against a previously un- 
defeated Muhlenburg club. Junior Jay 
Mosley booted three field goals including 
a last-second 18-yarder that carried the 
team to a 16-14 victory in a seesaw affair. 

Against Swarthmore, in a game 
indicative of the team's failure in crucial 
situations, the Dutchmen battled from 
behind to take a 14-13 lead in the final 
period. But that lead vanished in a late 
Swarthmore field goal. Still, with the 
score 16-14 the Valley quickly moved 
the ball into field goal position. With 
just seconds left Mosley attempted a 
37-yard field goal that, in a disputed 
call, was ruled no good. The team was 
defeated in a game that saw them inside 
the opponents' 15-yard line five times 
without scoring. 

Finally, against Moravian, the Val- 
ley played an entire game the way they 
were capable of playing. The defense 
dominated the Greyhounds and the 
offense with a ball-control game. LVC 
won 17-0. 

In their next to last game the team 
participated in the 27th annual Pretzel 
Bowl in Reading. The offense never got 
untracked in the game and the defense 
could not contain Albright's wishbone 
attack. The final score was: Albright 
20, Lebanon Valley 3. 

Finally, of course, LVC ended their 
season with the victory over Western 
Maryland at Westminster. The game was 
quite a lift to see and left hopes high for 
the future. The team ended 3-6, but 
four of the losses were by a total of only 

13 points. The record could have very 
easily have been reversed. 

Still, there were some bright spots 
as individuals starred during the season. 
Senior Rick Coleman completed a bril- 
liant career by rushing for 1026 yards, 
becoming only the second LVC rusher 
ever to go over the 1000-yard mark. 
This season total brought Rick's career 
yardage to 3068, an LVC record by far. 
He set another record by rushing 237 
times during the year and led the team 
in scoring with 36 points. Rick was a 
unanimous choice on the first team 
All-MAC squad. 

Jay Mosley was also anmed to the 
All-MAC team. Jay, at last count, was 
third in the nation averaging 41.4 yards 
per punt. Also, he tied an LVC record 
by kicking seven field goals and scored 
33 points kicking on the season. 

Senior Terrence Brown and senior 
co-captain Chuck B levins also made the 
All-MAC squad. Brown, a defensive 
back, was selected for the team for the 
third consecutive year. In those three 
years he collected ten interceptions. 
Blevins, a tight end, caught 20 passes for 
309 yards and was named to the team 
for the first time. Duane Luckenbill, 
a senior defensive tackle, received hon- 
orable mention to the squad. 

Lebanon Valley placed more ath- 
letes on the All-League team than any 
team except Franklin & Marshall and 

The 1977 LVC football season was 
disappointing but optimistic. The team 
showed that it can compete with anyone 
in the league. It was a young team and 
can be expected to return with fine 
seasons in the near future.
